Diane Rendle

About the artist - Diane Rendle

Born and raised in East Africa, Diane’s work is representative of diversity within culture, this combined with a love of travel and stories of explorers, creates work inspired by the vibrancy of foreign lands. Early in life, Diane was immersed in a highly patterned environment with richly coloured flora and fauna, providing a wealth of visual memories to inspire. 

Diane’s work creates a world that cannot be realised, but is representative of a story-telling process, combined with her own imagination and ability to create this world inside her studio near the Scottish Borders. The result is illustrative scenes delicately painted in acrylic with a gentle aesthetic, each one retelling atale, much as a traveller would have done.

Diane Rendle was born and raised in East Africa. After graduating from Hornsey College of Art, London in 1981 with a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration she moved to Edinburgh to work for a design consultancy. Diane has had a number of solo exhibitions with the Open Eye Gallery and taken part in many group exhibitions in Scotland. She has work in private collections throughout the UK.
